Team falls to 5-10, looking for arms  

The Powell Pioneers went 2-3 at the Buffalo Wild Wings Invitational in Billings, Mont., over the weekend to complete a disappointing 2-6 week of baseball.

Powell (5-9, 2-0 Northwest) found itself in the midst of every type of game last week. The Pioneers won a high-scoring close game against Gillette and lost two by a single run. The team won by 14 and then lost by 17 in the same day.

Those looking for some fun in the sun this weekend in the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area should be on the lookout for an influx of Webelos, Wolves, Bears and even Tiger Cubs.

If found face-to-face with one of these clever critters, do not be alarmed, they are just part of the Big Horn District Cub Scout Day Camp.

Erickson, Klassen qualify at Montana’s state finals  

Two Powell High School students qualified for the National High School Finals Rodeo over the weekend in Kalispell, Mont.

Graduating PHS senior Skyler Erickson and junior Jalisa Klassen each advanced to nationals by placing in the top four of their event(s) at the Montana High School Rodeo Association State Finals in Kalispell’s Majestic Valley Arena.

Through the first seven games of the Powell Recreation softball season Cody Seamless Siding sits atop the standings with a 6-1 record.

My Auto and Woodward Tractor Beavers both sit at 5-1 and Prime Power is the last team with a winning record at 4-2.

LARAMIE — With 10 All-America honors already under his belt, this weekend’s NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships may seem like old hat to the University of Wyoming’s Mason Finley. But Friday will be the Cowboy senior’s last chance to capture a title to which he has come tantalizingly close during his collegiate career.

Two Powell Panther boys were named finalists for the Milward Simpson Award.

Hayden Cragoe and Garrett Lynch are among the five Wyoming graduating seniors who are eligible to win the annual honor, given to the most outstanding male and female athlete in Wyoming prep sports.

The award will be announced June 21.

For the second time in a week the Powell Pioneers were involved in a no-hitter, though Saturday found the home team on the wrong end of a punchless offensive performance.

Cole Torgensen of the Billings Halos threw seven innings of no-hit ball, including 12 strikeouts and no walks in a 3-0 game 1 win, and the Pioneers had only three hits (two singles and a double) in a 6-2 loss in game 2.

More than 90 athletes competed in Powell’s Dano‘lope’ Dash May 31 and a small contingent of Powellites traveled across the Big Horns for the 31st annual Buffalo Triathlon Saturday.

Cory Heny was perfect and the lineup was better than good as the Powell Pioneers swept the Lovell Mustangs in a conference doubleheader Tuesday evening in Powell.

Heny struck out 11 of the 15 batters he faced and needed only 62 pitches (49 for strikes) to get through the Mustang lineup one and two-thirds times. Then the Powell offense ended Game 1 early by going up big in a 12-0 win.
